We’re going to the Kimmel!

TUP Students were greeted to another packed house for their Spring concert. (video and pictures pending) As a result of their hard work and focus, they have been invited to perform on Easter Sunday April 8th at the Kimmel Center! This opportunity provided through the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra and Reverend Dr. Herbert H. Lusk, II, Pastor speaks volumes to the dedication and support of these two organizations. As our students have been so committed to their instrument, I have taken up a project to learn the basics of all of our instruments. As a Guitarist and piano noodler, I must say the string instruments are closest to home. The challenge of attempting brass instruments and woodwinds will allow me to share in their goals, and encourage creative approaches to learning.

I guess it’s time for a real violin lesson…
